Leo’s Mane Sew Along

On my Needles and other fun stuff.....

I loaded a new customer quilt on Thursday and got it half finished. It is such a cute panel, with some piecing added to it around the outside. I’m doing a water effect in the background areas of it, and outlining the figures, mostly frogs and fish.
I worked on that quilt until about 5 pm yesterday, and then came down to play with yarn.
Ever since we found out on Wednesday that our coming grandchild is going to be a grand daughter, I’ve been having all kinds of fun planning and playing with baby girl stuff. I’ve got all kinds of sock yarn left over from making socks, for starters. So I found a pattern on Ravelry for a basic new born sized hat. I’m to the point of starting to make the decreases for the top part of the hat, so it shouldn’t take too much longer to finish. I started another sleep sac, today, but it’s upstairs, and I’m too lazy to go up and get it for pictures. I’ll post it when it’s finished..... maybe tomorrow.
I already know what I want to do up next. These cute little booties, Crocodile Stitch Booties, using this yarn. And then there just might be this hat to go with it, or maybe this one. Who knows, maybe both. It depends on how fast the crochet goes, compared to the knitting. All I do know is I’m having all kinds of wonderful fun! I’m liking up to Judy’s On the Needles. And then I’m going to knit.

  1. Knitting for babies is so addictive! partly because it goes so quickly... Love your hat yarn, and the booties are going to be adorable too!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
